3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the 12 pack Beer Camp from Total Wine in Boca Raton. Snifter in my dining room. Pours a light gold with a very slight haze. Small white fluffy head. Aroma is cereal, Belgian yeasts, slight spice, banana, cloves. Teh taste is similar with a slight dry funkiness and hoppiness that is not as characteristic of a Belgian blonde. Nice carbonation and refreshing body. FInish is dry spices and hoppy. Very nice job.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle picked up at Bevmo
Pour slightly cloudy straw yellow with a small white head, light lacing. Aroma of straw, yeast and sweet malts. Taste is the same as it smells, with some black pepper in the finish
Not what I expected from 2 breweries that usually put out great beer.

Poured from bottle to glass. Straw hue with white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is straw, lemon, peppercorn. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a spicy finish. Overall this brew is so-so.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a huge creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy, citric and had a Sweettart candy presence. The flavor was bitter, dryish and chalky with notes of yeast and tart citrus. Long finish of chalk and citrus. Medium body. Meh.

Sierra Nevada / Russian River Beer Camp Yvan the Great is a one off you have to try. Blonde pour with a fluffy white head giving off a wonderful tropical aroma. Taste is a nice balance of malt and aromatic hops that linger on the palate. Yvan the Great is a just that -- get it while you can.

really nice and fairly light Belgian blonde. Enough body and flavor to make it interesting, but easy enough to toss back as well. Light pineapple, apple, and fruit esters all over, hints of straw, tiny hop kick at the end. Good stuff!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle. Fruity, lightly sweet aroma, faintly herbal and honeyish with notes of lemongrass, melon, yeast spice, floral perfume, some very faint phenols and bubblegum esters present in the background as well. Lightly hazy light golden yellow in color, the head subsiding completely. Flavor profile is lightly citric, fruity, very gently tart and sweet, with suggestions of lemon, herbal tones, gently sweet pale malts, and some faintly peppery spice underneath. Little to no effervescence on the palate, strangely, resulting in a watery effect, body is medium. Some warmth present late. Interesting stuff, though not exactly what I expected, I guess.
